Thank you for looking into this. Although I appreciate their suggestions, I did not try Bill or Inger's methods because they did not address what I am hoping to achieve. The DHTML menu builder works great in my web building software, copying the clipboarded code into an HTML object, so DHTML compatability is not an issue for me. I just want to over-ride the predetermined positioning.
So what does all this mean? It looks like you are saying it cannot be done in VSD, but I do not use VSD. Here is where a DHTML menu I built is currently in use:http://www.bighorndesertviewwateragency.com/
Because I had to center it inside the box for depth effect, it took several tries to get it just right. It would be nice to avoid this by sizing an html object box the same as the menu, drag the html menu box and drop it exactly where the menu should be positioned, then import the menu code. I did precisely this with the flash form and the hit counter on the same site.
